Massage therapy promotes healing all over your body. It eases the tension in your muscles, joints, and deep tissues, and it improves circulation throughout the targeted area. The relaxation and the increased circulation help your body to heal more quickly, which increases the gains from your other treatments such as physiotherapy or chiropractic.

How long is a Massage therapy treatment?

Massage Therapy sessions include a brief assessment in each session and typically are suggested to be 30 to 90 minutes. We recommend a minimum of 45-minute massage treatment for the first visit. After the assessment, you and your massage therapist will decide on the length of your follow up visits.

What Is Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic massage is a treatment massage using many different techniques. It can be a gentle relaxing massage or a tense and deep tissue massage. After muscle and tendon injuries, fractures, operations, injured muscles become tense, knotted and immobile. These techniques employed by registered massage therapists in Toronto can assist in speeding up the healing process and prevent complications such as scar tissue formation, decreased joint mobility and assist the patient to return to their normal life. Remedial or Therapeutic massage treats not only the injured area but the whole body and addresses the root cause of pain. Therapeutic massage can lower cortisol levels and increase serotonin and dopamine levels. These hormonal changes control pain, improve mood, enhance sleep, decrease stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation.

What Is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage techniques are suitable for deeper tissues and body structures such as muscles and fascia. A deep tissue massage is used in sports injuries to promote tissue healing and prevent scar tissue formation as well as releasing muscle tension and trigger points. A deep tissue massage is generally used for larger muscle groups such as neck and upper back or thigh muscles and ITB. Our massage therapists in Toronto use deep tissue massages to:

  • Release muscle tension in deeper structures
  • Release chemicals such as lactic acid from muscles
  • Increase blood supply and oxygen to tissues
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Prevent scar tissue formation

The movements and techniques are generally similar to lighter massage techniques such as Swedish massage applying more intense pressure. There might be some discomfort associated with a deep tissue massage. Many people refer to this discomfort as “good pain”. It is not uncommon to feel mild pain a few days following a deep tissue massage similar to mild soreness after starting an exercise regimen.

What Is Prenatal & Postpartum Massage?

A pregnancy massage is for an expectant mother and aims to address the specific needs of an expecting mother (Prenatal) or a mother who has recently given birth (Postpartum).

Expecting or new mothers commonly suffer from back pain, swelling of legs, leg cramps, and foot pain. Like a regular massage, pregnancy or postnatal massage is to relax tense muscles, decrease pain, improve blood flow, decrease edema and swelling of legs, and improve flexibility and joint mobility.

Pregnancy massage is specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Because most pregnant women find it uncomfortable to lie face down, knowledge and care are required to make sure the patient is comfortable. Our massage therapists in Toronto are trained in prenatal and postnatal massage and have a good understanding of how to safely position an expecting mother and use appropriate massage techniques.

What Is Swedish Massage?

Swedish massage is a type of therapeutic massage and is the most common and better-known type of massage in North America and the western world. Our trained and registered massage therapists in Toronto employ different techniques in massage therapy including Swedish, deep tissue massage, relaxation massage and many more. Swedish massage is based on the western knowledge of anatomy and physiology and is the most common massage technique in treating injuries.

Since Swedish massage is not a deep tissue technique, it is commonly used for general relaxation or for treating patients after severe injuries such as whiplash, sports injuries, sprains and strain, and other muscle or joint injuries. This technique of massage therapy, Swedish massage, is also perfect for people who have not had previous experience with massage or people who may not be comfortable with deep tissue techniques.

What Is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is used before, during, and after sporting events. The purpose of the message is to improve the athlete’s performance by warming up muscles, improving blood flow and reducing fatigue after a game. It is also used to decrease swelling, reduce muscle tension, increase flexibility and ultimately to prevent injuries.

Massage therapy for sports injuries is the application of various massage techniques to help athletes prevent injuries, prepare for the physical demand for training or competition, perform better and/ or recover from injuries. It can be applied before, during and after a sporting event to assist the athlete for peak performance or prevent fatigue and assist in recovering after the event. Local teams, clubs and individual athletes all benefit from sports massage therapy delivered by our Toronto massage therapists.

One doesn’t have to be an athlete to suffer injuries related to sports and physical activities. Muscle strains, tendon, and ligament sprains and increased muscle tension after a workout all are conditions that a sports massage therapist can treat.

Our sport massage therapists in Toronto are trained and are able to provide pre-event, on-site & post-event.
